    That seems like a very clear concise process, and definable characteristics that you wanted. Withing the 6 month time frame I am sure the individuals you got were the best. I can see why you decided to go with them.

    Very good to hear. Famous people are not necessarily the ones who become moderators.
    I hope you have a great day.

    We also have them sign an agreement to assure that they will be doing their tasks and responsibilities for the community with the goal of wanting to help players without drama or issues, otherwise, if they break the rules and agreement they will be kicked out of the mod team. We need to be strict on this one.

    I gotta say, that's a nice touch to it! Did they sign a combination of a NDA, or just the Moderation Agreement? Are we allowed to know the parameters of what you expect their task and responsibilities to be?


    My main question is, with this new coordination, how long should it take to execute, and when do you plan to see the results?

    I think it’s better for the mods to create a new account and their main account to remain hidden. This will cut the drama why did “random” a mod but “famous” is not. And so the main account still can express opinion without prejudice

    That has been the tradition for all of the mods since Day 1 and we are still doing the same thing. So yes, these new mods will keep their real identity hidden and all have a new mod name.

    You will see them online once they start training within the week. Then they will be more active in moderating in-game right after, that should be last week of this month or starting next month.

    Hey, so are we ever going to have small group of beta testers? So we don’t have dupes like the Jan techno disaster happen again? These would need to be veteran players of coarse.

    Also I want an answer on this. What happened with pet battles? You guys stopped adding abilities to pets since fish training (only a selected few got abilities) so what happened there?

    As for the announced changes I’m quite excited and fearful of the results. But only time will tell.

    OH and when is the community suggestion box going to be updated

    Anyway, so the mods 2.0 are already chosen?
